The Centennial School District is getting a $362,626 grant to improve school safety, including upgrading and adding security cameras.

School officials said the district was awarded the safety and security grant by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.

The grant is for the purchase of physical, technological, and mental health measures to improve the safety and well-being of students, staff, community, and visitors in the Centennial School District, school officials said.

“We are delighted to receive these additional funds to support our ongoing efforts to improve safety and security in the Centennial School District," Schools Superintendent Dana T. Bedden said.

The one-time funds will be used to:

  • Conduct emergency management and situational awareness training for staff.
  • Install vehicle barriers around play areas that currently do not have fencing.
  • Provide additional school ID badge readers at specific CSD buildings.
  • Update and/or modify our security systems’ notification, lockdown functions, and locations.
  • Install additional cameras to help reduce and/or eliminate blind spots.
  • Update old cameras.
  • Replace locks, cores, and keys under one controlled system at specific buildings.
  • Add additional school psychological services to increase our mental health support.
